the fashionable home: fur

With my recent move, I was excited to change up my decor a bit.  I didn't really purchase anything new (more on this later), except some black lacquer spray, some assorted fabrics and a few yards of faux fur from Jo Ann's.  Faux, and not faux, fur isn't just a winter fashion staple, it is now a home fashion must have as well.  Fur accessories add texture and warmth, as well as a touch of luxe. 

My pillow...about $5.00

My ottoman...about $9.00

I was going to make a rug out of this piece, but I decided to throw it on the bed...
Manco approves.

cozying up for fall, with PARACHUTE Bedding

Since the beginning of September, I have; packed, moved, cleaned, unpacked, painted, styled, painted, unpacked, styled, unpacked...and we just had our first snow of the season.  Am I ready to get cozy?  Why yes, yes I am.

While I believe in being warm and cozy while viewing a little nighttime t.v., my cozy retreat is my bed.  A bed with soft, comfy linen sheets, a sateen duvet cover for my down comforter, a relaxing lavender candle and a great book.  Since my sleep attire is sleeveless, my arms can get a bit chilly while reading, so there is nothing like wrapping up in a soft, warm, cozy cashmere throw to keep the chill at bay. 

Parachute bedding is all about quality, craftmanship, and comfort; the three essential elements for a cozy fall...and winter.

Stay tuned!

love it, live it: item inspired lounge, williams-sonoma seymour bar cabinet

After seeing the Seymour (faux shagreen) Bar Cabinet on the cover of the Williams-Sonoma lookbook, I knew I had to do a lounge for it!  A little glam, a little retro, and a lot of  "oh yeah!", this is a lounge to sit back and stay awhile in...

love it, live it: item inspired interior, west elm stella bed

I was cruising my favorite furniture sites for new pieces and I came across the fabulous Stella Metal Bed from West Elm.  The spindle design may be traditional, but the brass finish definitely injects a bit of mod glam.  This bedroom is glammishly serene with its texture, clean lines and a clean color palette.
